Septic Tank Faults

Your septic tank system is designed to break down wastewater without needing to be connected the mains drainage system. While these septic tank systems are self-contained and typically run problem free, you may have started to notice foul smelling emissions or waste leakage coming from the system. If you have noticed these issues or any other apparent faults with the septic tank such as baffle collapse, baffle tear or ball detachment, it is vital that you contact a professional at the earliest opportunity.
When these types of faults occur, not only will your system not function as expected, but you run the risk of leaking and polluting into the surrounding environment and properties. This is a health hazard and will be in breach of environment agency regulations. New regulations also stipulate that you may not allow septic tanks to discharge directly to surface water. If your current system does this, you will be in breach of government directives and environmental agency legislation.

Upgrading Septic Tank Systems

You may also require an upgrade of your current septic tank system if you are looking at expanding your property and increasing the amount of sewage to be discharged into the sewage treatment plant.
